RIP Ziggy Stardust

By
Home Stager with Sharon Tara Transformations

I woke up to the surprising and very sad news that David Bowie had passed away last night.

I've been a Bowie fan since I was in junior high school.

One of my favorite Bowie songs is Changes, which inspired me to write a blog post two years ago..... What's David Bowie Got To Do With Home Staging?  

 

One of my all time favorite Christmas songs is 

Little Drummer Boy sung by David Bowie and Bing Crosby.

 

 

My daughter-in-law is a huge fan. I made this picture of her for her birthday a couple of years ago and she loves it. Today it's her facebook profile picture.

 

Such a talented man.   

David Bowie, the super star , will live on through his music and movies, but it's still very sad knowing that David Bowie, the man, is now gone.

RIP Ziggy Stardust

Kathleen Daniels  It was cancer. 

Gita Bantwal  I'm sure it will be in the news all day.

Nicole Doty - Gilbert Real Estate Expert  Absolutely. He inspired many.  I just found out today that his son is a director. I didn't know that.

Gene Mundt, Chicago-area Mortgage Lender - www.genemundt.com   I felt the same way about Robin Williams. They do feel like we know them and it's so sad to lose them.

Beth Atalay  That can't be taken away. In that way he lives on.

Janice Ankrett It's pretty amazing his secret was kept. I am so glad it wasn't leaked. The media can be so heartless with that kind of info. Now if his family can be left alone that would be nice.

Hello Sharon ... I also received the shocking news of losing a "Rock Legend" to liver cancer 

I have followed David Robert Jones since 1969 when he came out with his single "Changes" and have followed Bowie on FB, Twitter, etc. I have had the privilege of seeing Bowie 4 different times in concert with many great photographs along the way. I have a Bowie album collected with an autographed album followed by 40 different albums and collector picture sleeve 45's worth over $100,000 dollars.

When I first heard of Bowie's passing on FB, I was as shocked about the lose similar as when John Lennon was shot and killed.

David Bowie was the first Rock Billionare, Artist, Author, Actor and has helped other stars like, Lou Reed, T-Rex (Marc Bolan), Mott the Hoople, Queen, New York Dolls, Roxy Music, Eno, Nine Inch Nails and more.

David Jones was ahead of his time and the world will not be the same without him.

I will continue to listen to his music for the rest of my life ;o/

RIP ZIGGY 

PS: please take a look at my latest post with 3 great photos that I took of David in his early years!

Heaven certainly gained an amazing musician, sad news, but at least he is not suffering with the cancer any longer.

I heard this on the news today while driving home from visiting my sister who is in rehab at this time.  Sad news indeed.

Robert (Alaska Bob) Swetz  I'm so glad you took the time to stop and leave such an amazing comment. You have to be one of the super fans of all fans.  Although I always wanted to see him in concert, I never did get the chance. Of course, I will head over to see your post and photos!  Thank you so much for commenting!

Good morning Sharon.  From what I've read he was a private man but his music spoke to all of us.

Sharon, this was a shock, and he did keep a secret about his cancer.   He will be missed, and was such a great artist!

Joan Cox  Seems so out of the blue....and yet he was dealing with it for a year and a half.  I'm glad he didn't have the added pressure of the media storm that would chase that sort of thing.

Hi Sharon -- I heard the news on Sunday night and it was particularly eerie to me as the Los Angeles Times had a review of his new album that day which happened to be two days after his 69th birthday.   

 

I don't know where I'm going from here, but I promise it won't be boring -

David Bowie

Michael Jacobs  The timing of it all was really strange...eerie is a good way to put it.  I'm sure more information about his last days will start popping up....some not even true.

This was indeed very sad. My middle daughter Amanda fell in love with David Bowie via the labyrinth. She has been listening to his music and of course watching the movie all week.
